Pelosi, Lantos Refuse to Visit France

Thanks to Mason Conservative for the inspiration.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Tom Lantos (D’s-CA) both said that they refused to visit France. “There’s this vast right-wing media conspiracy that is telling everyone that we are willing to visit any country hostile to the United States,” said Pelosi. “This is simply not true. While there is a lot to admire about France, namely, their constructive role they played in Iraq before 2003, their strong work ethic, and their charming President Jacques Chirac, the country disturbs us in many ways. For example, they haven’t beheaded anyone in almost 30 years! Besides, we have better wine in California.”

Lantos, a Holocaust survivor, added that “we will keep France on our list of places to visit at a future time. We are excited that they encourage their Moslems to respect the Jews much the way Iran does. If this trend continues we will reconsider our travel plans.”
